Chaffel BLT

Chaffel BLT; I use a mini waffle iron as I like to keep the cheese low on my diet. I have made the 1/2 cup of cheese and 1 egg ones also, and they are delicious.

I use a mini iron, because I it’s easy, quick and a small sandwich. I used a special melting cheese I found at Meijers, but you can use anything. I precook bacon, chop it, and add to a container for using in salads, stir-fry’s and now chaffels. I add the bacon to the cheese, before closing the iron. That way, the bacon stayed in, and was part of the sandwich. I enjoyed the crunch of the sandwich. Delicious, easy and fun idea.

I got this idea from an amazing fb page. The husband and wife cook and share some fantastic recipes. They are called: Let’s Celebrate Weight Loss (author: Chrissy Kruppenbach)

Keto Crunchy Granola

Game Changer for me! I just had a 1/4 cup of this with some strawberries and blueberries and a couple tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk. So delicious! I stored this in a large mason jar, in the fridge.

You do have to watch this closely; after the first 15 minutes, you stir and then watch in 5 minute increments – I put mine on a silicone mat – very easy to pour it directly in to a large mason jar, and store in the refrigerator.

The website I found this on has many many Keto friendly recipes, I have pinterest marked for future creations.

Southwestern Sauteed Corn

TOH Southwestern Sauteed Corn


I made a thank you meal for a neighbor, who helped us with a broken appliance. I added this as the side dish.

I will make this again, for us.

I added one more seasoning- Everything Bagel seasoning, because I love adding that to veggie dishes.

Blend 1 1/2 cups cubed seedless watermelon; 1/2 cup chopped strawberries and 2 tablespoons each superfine sugar (I did not use sugar as the fruit is sweet enough for me) and lime juice in a blender. Divide among ice pop molds (each 3/4 full) ; freeze 1 hour. Puree 1 cup cubed cantaloupe or honeydew melon with 2 tablespoons each superfine sugar (I did not use sugar as the fruit is sweet enough for me) and lime juice. Divide among the ice pop molds, insert sticks, and freeze until firm.

Honeydew melon would be tasty with this but I only had a cantaloupe.


Jim enjoys a Popsicle after working outside in this heat, so I wanted to try my hand at making some using real fruit. I just had one and these are delicious – no preservatives, no artificial colors and no artificial flavors. I’m delighted with the cantaloupe flavor – now I want to try honeydew

Salsa Burgers and beans

When Jim makes salsa burgers – he always makes a lot. I have to figure out how to use them in recipes because I get tired of them. Chili has been done. Sloppy Joe sandwiches, and so on. With just a few left, I remembered a meal my best friends mother use to make for us kids when we were younger – there were six of us and her 4 – she served this with buttered bread and it was so good.

I only have 3 ingredients here:

Jim’s salsa burgers

Campbell’s Pork & Beans

sauteed onion

Mix together and heat. Jim had never had this before. He ate it all and said, “more please” So, I bought some hamburger, mixed in taco seasoning packet and the onion and beans. Super Easy.

Delicious with toasted garlic bread.

Summer Zucchini Soup

Delicious! We like this hot. You can do hot or cold. Jim asked me to save some for him when he gets off work.

This is what I am sipping on today after a big walk. This is so good. I followed the recipe, and then I added my own spices at the end (rosemary/garlic salt; Italian blend; green onions)

I will be making this often. I’m including photo of recipe and the book it came from.
